Annual Golf Outing
Each summer, join your fellow CASMI members and other industry professionals for 18 holes of championship golf on the competitive Hilton Indian Lakes Resort course rated one of the best new courses in Northern Illinois. The course will welcome the average player and will challenge everyone. Bring your sunglasses and sunscreen.
Biennial Dinner Dance
Members, Exhibitors and Suppliers are invited to join us for a Special Evening at the Chicago Association of Spring Manufacturers, Inc. Biennial Dinner Dance and Board Induction. This interactive event includes cocktails, extraordinary food and specialties, a new orchestra/ band from one of our own member suppliers, and a festive evening to mingle with your peers. Plan on bringing your loved ones and key staff.
Day at the Races
CASMI’s “Day at the Races” is a favorite group activity allows CASMI Members and SpringWorld Exhibitors, along with industry colleagues and members of the Mid-West Fastener Association, to get together in a casual and enjoyable networking environment. This fall event has been so successful that word got around and registration keeps growing, with almost 80 participants last year enjoying a private suite, delicious buffet, open bar and the excitement of thoroughbred racing.
Scheduled throughout the year, dinner meetings combine networking and practical education on a variety of topics, from human resources to finance. The format varies from single presenter to a panel discussion.
This day-long event is for Regular Members and includes a plant tour and lunch. In 2015, CASMI members visited the Keystone Steel & Wire Plant in Peoria, Illinois. The three main areas of the tour included the Melt Shop, Rod Mill and Mid Mill.
